FRYE ON FILM
“The Scholar in Society: Northrop Frye in Conversation,” a half-hour documentary film prepared by the National Film Board of Canada, features a discussion with Northrop Frye about the role of the humanities in the University and the relation between education in language and reading and the ability of people to function fully and freely in society. Mark L. Greenberg, who served as Literary Consultant to the filmmakers, and who secretly wishes there were more of Frye on Blake, nevertheless believes Blakean will find the film inspiring. It was screened at the 1984 MLA Convention by a large and appreciative audience. Those interested in obtaining either a 16 mm print or a video format should contact Ms. Mary Jane Terrell, National Film Board of Canada, 1251 Avenue of the Americas—16th floor, New York, NY 10020.
